2nd Set: Alright, y'all happy to get your "Box?" It's sweet and cozy. "Samson" has a false start then takes us on an enjoyable if not blazing ride through its terrain. A plucky "Iko" keeps the crowd moving. "LLR" is slightly over-the-top but that effort is appreciated. It's spring '88 obligatory partner "Terrapin" follows. A carbon-copy album version without the orchestrations. "Drums" is about as 'space'y with percussion as I've heard in some time. "Space" doesn't quite reach the ominous places I'd wish it to. It appears we're heading down the 'OO->Wharf->Throwing->NFA' third night routine. Ideally, lasers would be employed when Brent decides to drive us into hyperspace during "OO." "Wharf" is a band going through the (professional) motions. "Throwing" sounds a little thin and rushed compared to the norm; Jerry's guitar (7:30) ounds like Stevie Wonder's wurlitzer during 'Superstition.' Some lady cannot stop screaming during the "NFA." Anyways, it's bouncy and fun.
Choosing "Quinn" to end with keeps the audience bright and happy.
2 4/5 stars
